Project Title: ”Educational for Drone / eDrone” (15.10.2016-14.10.2019).

The purpose of the eDrone project is to define a learning environment to provide opportunities for new skills related to the use of drones in professional activities.

These new competences refer in particular to the use of advanced ICT solutions for the use of drones and droned data, which would contribute to the optimization of the professional skills covered by the partner countries' 2020 socio-economic development strategy and in terms of creating new employment opportunities, especially for young people, as mentioned in the European Commission's Youth on the Move report.

Using drones by professionals will open new opportunities that require practical and theoretical knowledge.

Basic Components:

The main objective of the eDrone project is to provide higher education institutions in the partner countries with the opportunity to create training centers on the use of the drones, as well as the transfer of knowledge to professionals from each partner country.

The project aims to develop an innovative ICT-based infrastructure to use technologies and an updated methodology to enable all partner countries to create a network for exchange of experience and databases.

Project “Modernization of academic library services in Moldova”, Project number CPEA-2015/10014. Project period: 2016-2019.

Project “Modernization of academic library services in Moldova” funded by the Norwegian Cooperation Programme in Higher Education with Eurasia, developed in partnership between the Academy of Economic Studies of Moldova, University of Bergen, Norway, Transilvania University of Brasov, Romania and 18 university libraries from Moldova.

Project Summary. The main partners, University of Bergen Library and Academy of Economic Studies of Moldova Scientific Library (ASEM) have collaborated in several smaller and larger projects. In this project, the partners are taking the collaboration and knowledge sharing to all the academic libraries in Moldova. The main activity of this project will be capacity building of the librarians, and through them of academic staff and students of the higher education institutions. For this purpose will be organised a series of workshops in Chisinau and three summer schools.

Through the workshops and summer schools, the academic librarian community in Moldova will obtain meeting places, and thus develop internal networks of library staff working with the same issues. The project communication structure, with a blog/web page as a mainstay, will also support the network building. At the same time, dissemination at international conferences, a study trip to Norwegian academic libraries and trainings by international experts will provide an international network for the Moldovan academic librarians.

If the project is successful the librarians working in the academic libraries in Moldova will be better trained for running modern library services. This will influence the quality of higher education and research. The librarians will have better English language skills, and will have strengthened their networks, both within and outside Moldova. The general public will have a better understanding of the importance of libraries.
